Indoor farms near Aldi South
by Editor (comments: 0)
Mint, basil, coriander and other fresh herbs now thrive in Aldi Süd markets in Germany. Customers can buy the plants freshly harvested from so-called indoor farms.
This is made possible by an exclusive cooperation in the German discount store with Infarm from Berlin, the world's fastest growing farming network. The first Indoor Farms will be available from the end of May in five Aldi Süd stores in the Düsseldorf and Frankfurt regions. By the end of 2020, seven more branches are to be equipped with the farms. From autumn onwards, Infarm Growing Center will also supply more than 300 branches with fresh locally grown herbs, the discounter announces.
"At no time do we apply chemical pesticides, fungicides, herbicides or growth hormones to our plants. Only untreated seed is used in the cultivation of our plants," says Emmanuel Evita, Global Communications Director at Infarm. Further information on the Aldi Blog.
